"Coffee break! Here is a summery and fruity cake that will lift your mood and energy levels. For my red currant cake, I used less sugar. It tastes refreshingly tangy, but also sweet with red currants and fluffy meringue."

    • large bowl

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. To make the cake base, whisk together sugar, vanilla sugar, egg yolks, and soft butter. Add flour, baking powder, and milk, and mix to combine. Fill the batter into a greased and flour-dusted springform pan. Bake at 180°C/350°F for approx. 15 min. Set aside.

    To make the meringue, beat egg whites until foamy. Then add sugar and vanilla sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.

Bake again at 180°C/350°F for approx. 15 min.
